As “Official Partner of the Team”, eFootball PES and SS Lazio will be tightly integrated through in-game and real-world activations

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. has announced that Società Sportiva Lazio (SS Lazio), the top-tier Italian football club, is the latest to join their partner club program for the eFootball PES franchise.

KONAMI’s franchise will be one of the few real-time football simulation games to feature the fully-licensed, authentic recreation of SS Lazio. As an “Official Partner of the Team”, KONAMI receives extensive rights to the team name and crest, team kits, select club Legends, and a wide array of marketing opportunities.

As already featured in this year’s eFootball PES 2021 SEASON UPDATE, SS Lazio and their stadium, Stadio Olimpico, have been recreated in-game to the highest standards.

To celebrate the partnership, PES 2021 console and mobile players who log in between 10/12/2020 15:00 UTC and 16/12/2020 23:59 UTC will receive Lazio club Legends, Paul Gascoigne and José Marcelo Salas Melinao, as a bonus.

Founded in 1900 and based in Rome, Società Sportiva Lazio has competed at the highest level of Italian club football for most of its history. “I Biancocelesti” (The White and Sky Blues) have won the Italian championship twice, the Coppa Italia seven times and the Supercoppa Italiana three times.

KONAMI’s latest partnership announcement for the eFootball PES franchise follows previous Italian deals including the Italian Football Federation.

Naoki Morita, President at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. commented: “Through our new partnership with SS Lazio, it is our strong belief that we can reach an even broader range of football fans and gamers in Italy and beyond. We’re looking forward to a long and successful partnership.”

Dr. Claudio Lotito, President of Società Sportiva Lazio said: “I welcome the entry of the KONAMI brand into the SS Lazio Family with great pleasure. I am sure that the partnership will lead us towards the development of projects that will allow Lazio to increase its notoriety and visibility at an international level.

The spirit with which KONAMI has worked in these difficult months to create a collaboration that will be winning is beautiful. We will be happy to work with KONAMI to promote activities aimed at developing and increasing the awareness of the Lazio brand as soon as the pandemic allows it. The values ​​of KONAMI, world leader in games, are fully married to the spirit of the Lazio family by developing together to also benefit the wider community of Lazio fans and video gamers. It is great when two international brands come together to create and develop added value”.

The drivers will be guided by the leadership of Team Principal Richard Arnaud, Race Director Robin Bondon, Performance Manager Julien Southon, Ambassador Thom “Thomb” Brouwer and Coach Samba Sy.

In addition to competing in this year’s F1 Esports Pro Championship, Alpine Esports will act as an organiser to the Alpine Esports Series due to start next month.

By partnering with Race Clutch, Alpine Esports Team will seek out and train the best Sim racers in the world with the ultimate goal of winning. The team have fantastic facilities and a superb line-up to make it happen. The Esports team will also continue to bridge the gap between virtual and real races, as these bridges move closer and closer each year between the two worlds. It will also learn from our Formula 1 and Alpine Racing programs. We can’t wait to see our team and our drivers compete virtually in 2021.”

Richard Arnaud – Race Clutch president & founder, Team Principal of Alpine Esports:

“The entire team at Race Clutch is proud and excited to become part of the Alpine family! Our expertise and years of experience in Sim racing will give Alpine Esports the best environment to continue to compete at the front. The goal is to win championships, with the F1 Esports Series as a first target. I believe in the team we have put together. I am sure this collaboration will increase the interest for the sport, bringing new F1 fans with us, and opening new opportunities for Alpine in the virtual world of racing. This is an exciting new journey that starts for Esports racing in France.”

 

Nicolas Longuet, Alpine Esports Team driver:

“I am happy to continue my career with Alpine after a successful 2020 season. For sure, after a first full campaign, now the goal is to fight for the championship and add more wins. The experience from last year will help to not repeat some mistakes. Some other teams seem stronger than last year already, but I feel confident and I am looking forward to the 2021 F1 Esports Series.”

 

Fabrizio Donoso, Alpine Esports Team driver:

“Considering last season, it’s great to have a chance to compete again this year. I’ve had time for myself on and off the sim. My main goal now is to focus only on performance and my driving.
